[Samba] RH 7.3 + Samba DC

Hi All,
very new to the linux thing.

I have tried our local linux list but no luck.

I have setup Samba on the box which is running Rh7.3 with Samba 2.2.3a-6 (server/common & client)
I got a tut from IBMs site on how to setup a pdc with samba and redhat.

I followed the tut step for step but still when I want to login on wind98 onto the box I get a message
that the pdc is not found.

When I try and locate the via network neighborhood on Win2k it does not appear, I then try a 'search'
via win2k but the pc is not to be found. When I use tcp/ip I can ping it and tracert to it.

I'm lost what is missing ? Listed below is my smb.conf:
